“No one has ever become poor by giving.” Truly quoted by Anne Frank, the author of the diary of a young girl. Compassion is the most powerful force in the world and motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental, or emotional pains of another and themselves. It is often regarded as having sensitivity, which is an emotional aspect to suffering. Compassion means respecting others’ feelings, have a genuine concern, and be kind to them. We live in a world lacking in compassion. The wisdom of our compassionate mind can help us to appreciate. Qualities of compassion are patience and wisdom; kindness and perseverance; warmth and resolve. The difference between sympathy and compassion is that the former responds to suffering from sorrow and concern while the latter responds with warmth and care. Compassion is a process of connecting by identifying with another person. This identification with others through compassion can lead to increased motivation to do something in an effort to relieve the suffering of others. COMPASSION is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering, capacity to understand the emotional state of another or oneself, and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. The sad reality of humanity is that the vast majority of people ignore the suffering of others. We often learn compassion only after we have suffered ourselves like in sickness, job loss, or death of a loved one. Being Compassionate to others can make us happier and can help us leave a positive mark on the world. So we should make effort to incorporate compassion into our daily routine and try to bring smiles to the faces of people whenever we find them sad.
